Meanings of Resource Compiler Messages
The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Windows Software Development Kit (SDK) versions 3.0, 3.1
The following describes what the RC compiler is telling you in its output when it is writing resources
<id>.<Predefined resource type> <bytes>
where <id> is the #define that you give a resource or the string in uppercase; <predefined resource type> is one of the following
#define CURSOR 1 #define BITMAP 2 #define ICON 3 #define MENU 4 #define DIALOG 5 #define STRING 6 #define FONTDIR 7 #define FONT 8 #define ACCELERATORS 9 #define RCDATA 10
and <bytes> is the size of the resource.
NOTE: In order to have the output described above generated, you must use the -v (verbose) switch for the resource compiler when binding a resource to an executable.
